THIS is the best album of the year. This may be the best album of the last five years. Every emotion you've ever been able to attach a name to is evoked within Mike Mantione's lyrics, and the music's depth shows itself a bit more with every listen.
Like so many other Athens musicians that never get due attention in today's glossy landscape, these guys should be on the cover of every music rag that matters.

Over the course of the past decade, Five-Eight have reinvented themselves again and again, transcending labels of "alternative", "indie", and "emo" and simply focusing on writing good music. After the arena-schlock of the overblown Gasolina LP, it's a return to form with the Good Nurse, a concept album of sorts regarding illness and recovery. The Classic Mantione Lyric count is high on this one, from "Why do we raise the dead with every argument?" to "You doctor's young and he's wringing from you every last breath/His oath tonight, it seems like hypocrisy", and new drummer Mike Rizzi adds a more complex musicianship to the band's sometimes punkish sound. A great, great album from Athens' least appreciated sons.

...or by genius. Either way, this album is special in a way few current works are. And that's what this is, a WORK, as in something important, beautiful, labored-over, even a little grand. This is NOT a religious album by any traditional definition, but I believe it's informed with something very "Christian" -- in the true meaning of that word. This is the most empathetic batch of songs you're likely to have heard. And yet they rock, really, really hard.
Five-Eight's other albums are well worth getting, but I have to admit, I have a hard time listening to them after The Good Nurse. They've ruined themselves for me!
